Hi,

After a client submits their information on the contact page of my website (http://www.allmade-up.com/#!contact), I would like to have them redirected to the home page, which is the url that I have listed under the "Redirect" option. Instead of leading them to the home page, it will instead open up a "mini version" of the home page within the website that is already open. So basically, it looks like one website inside of another. It appears to be some sort of glitch. How can this be corrected? My form name is "Client Contact Form".

Thanks,

This is not a glitch. This is occurring because you have a rather unorthodox way of displaying the form in what appears to be a Flash file. This is not supported by our service.

You might be able to get it to work by adding a target="_parent" attribute to the opening form tag of the myContactForm.com code. I have not tested this however and am not certain it would work.

Hello - I am new and trying my first form. I get the same thing and do not use a flash file. I may not be using this program in the near future but do need a form on this type of file for now. I want to be a premium customer but of course pending I can resolve this most immediate need.

I believe I understand your instruction to add a target="parent" attribute to a point. You say add it to the opening form tag of the code - I am pasting the opening tags below. Can you please show me where it would be added in this case? ( I have inserted X's in value areas to hide those indicators)

<!-- Begin myContactForm.com Form HTML -->
<form name="contactForm" method="post" action="http://www.mycontactform.com/sendform/sendform.php">
<input name="user" type="hidden" id="user" value="XXXXXXXXXX" /><input name="formid" type="hidden" id="formid" value="XXXXXXX" />


Also here is where the form is currently located. http://inspirationmotivation.com/contact.htm

Thanks if you can offer me some advice.

Change:

Code:
<form name="contactForm" method="post" action="http://www.mycontactform.com/sendform/sendform.php">


To:

Code:
<form name="contactForm" method="post" action="http://www.mycontactform.com/sendform/sendform.php" target="_blank">

NOTE! EDIT TO ADD: By redesigning the form I have found a successful layout and the rest of this mail - previously submitted and starting with quotes below, can be ignored. I am leaving it up for future readers. But now back to my original problem. The site software indicates the borders in the name your form looks for in the redirect page address - such as m is for body - t is for top r is for right border etc. When I put in the redirect for the form address after it is submitted, as stated above it works if I use the same page it is on making the address I have to insert as redirect

http://inspirationmotivation.com/contact_m.htm

Adding the _m to other page addresses does not appear to work.

Do you have any suggestions how to make it work so that the return address is different - but will still open up as a regular page view other than what you have already suggested?

Thanks if you do!

This worked only if I keep the return page to the same page as where the contact form is located - I'll settle for that for the moment and might experiment more later. It could be related to the program that I am using to build the site with but before I spend time on that - I have another error.

If you look where my form is - http://inspirationmotivation.com/contact.htm You will see that the form is running far right of the main body of the page. I originally set the form size to 1000 pixels - it looked like it does now. So then I edited it and changed it to 50% - either way it looks the same. I tried adding a right hand border and it ran itself under the border. Any ideas of what is causing it or how to fix it on this end? Why aren't the designations of actual pixel size or percent working? Thanks for your help!

Unfortunately, I am unable to offer much further advice, as it isn't exactly clear to me precisely what you are looking to do. I think the best route at this point is to experiment a bit and see if you can get it working.
